As the world marks this year’s International Women’s Day (IWD), women have been urged to strive for excellence and choose to challenge to be at every table where decisions are being made in the workplace, politics, economy and the society at large.

This was the summary of the virtual event held by new-age financial solutions powerhouse, Zedcrest Group, in celebration of International Women’s Day on Monday, 8 March 2021.

IWD 2021: Zedcrest Encourages Women to vie for Leadership Roles and Strive for Excellence

Speaking on the theme of this year’s event: “Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world”, the Group Managing Director of Zedcrest, Adedayo Amzat,CFA commended the tremendous efforts of women and girls around the world in shaping a more equal future and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and highlighted the gaps that remain.

“Women’s full and effective participation and leadership in all areas of life drive progress for everyone. Women are Heads of States or Governments in 22 countries, while only 24.9 per cent of national parliamentarians are women. At the current rate of progress, gender equality among Heads of Governments will take another 130 years.

“It’s time to change the narrative. The emergence of Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala as the first woman and first African as the Director-General of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) is a recent reminder of the capacity of women to lead.”

On the company’s commitment to gender balance in the workplace, Amzat noted that women make up the majority of Zedcrest workforce and also occupy leadership roles across different levels of its subsidiaries. He added that Zedcrest’s early-stage investment vehicle, [email protected] has a special interest in women-led startups.

In her remark, Stella Duru, Partner at Banwo & Ighodalo and Non-Executive Director of the Zedcrest Group, urged women to be more intentional about growth in their career and society.

“Both men and women need to challenge the stereotype of forcing women to choose between being a career woman or a mother. There is nothing holding women back in being both and growing to the zenith of their career. A woman raising kids or being pregnant does not mean that she ceases to be strong or competent.”

“As a nation, we need to give more leadership opportunities to women. During the recent End-SARS protests, women were at the forefront of the call for change. The Aba women riot is another example of how women have led evolutional changes in this country”, she added.

The second guest speaker at the event, Abiola Adekoya, Lead Wealth Advisor, Artios Capital & Non-Executive Director at Zedcrest Investment Managers, charged women to focus on their strengths and continue to change the narrative.

“We need more women that will be bold enough to have the hard conversation at their workplace, society, or wherever they find themselves”, she said.

Adekoya concluded her speech by encouraging women to lean into their femininity and lead with the unique strengths of womanhood.

The theme calls out to the world to celebrate women’s achievements, raise awareness against bias, and take action for equality.

ECOVACS ROBOTICS Introduces 9-in-1 DEEBOT T9 In Indonesia – Our Best DEEBOT Just Got Better!

“The Best Just Got Better" with the first robotic vacuum cleaners in the market to combine upgraded vacuuming and mopping capabilities in one go

 

JAKARTA, INDONESIA - Media OutReach - 13 April 2021 - ECOVACS ROBOTICS, the world's leading home service robotics maker, today launched the DEEBOT T9, the first models with intelligent 9-in-1 obstacle avoidance robotic vacuum cleaner that combines powerful vacuuming and mopping functions with a built-in mobile air freshener. The upgraded DEEBOT T9 with these cutting-edge features is more powerful and smarter than ever before.

DEEBOT T9 raises the bar for home cleaning with 9 stunning features, including the ECOVACS' leading TrueDetect 3D 2.0, a real-time strategic obstacle detection and avoidance technology; TrueMapping 2.0 for precise navigation; ECOVACS HOME App upgraded with 3D Map, and OZMO™ Pro 2.0 Electric Oscillating Mopping System that ensures stubborn stains are removed more efficiently and quietly, compared to previous generation.


"We keep a close eye on market demand and there was a clear indication that consumers want smart products that make homecare even simpler, doing as much and as thorough as they can, in one go. ECOVACS is committed to giving consumers the latest in smart and unique cleaning experience," said David Qian, Chief Executive Officer of ECOVACS ROBOTICS. "We've introduced our new-generation technologies, combined with multiple features while adding even more to our DEEBOT T9 to make sure every inch and floor surface is covered. Our Best DEEBOT Just Got Better."

Upgraded ECOVACS HOME App with Improved Obstacle Avoidance and Navigation Technology


TrueDetect 3D 2.0 technology comes with an upgraded algorithm to quickly detect different types of obstacles and strategically avoid them. The DEEBOT T9 can detect object sizes right down to mere millimeters, which is ten times more accurate than products using traditional infra-red technology, with a detection range of 70-350 millimeters. Moreover, DEEBOT T9 can navigate smoothly in different indoor environments and lighting conditions without any interruptions, even in total darkness. TrueDetect 3D 2.0 technology allows the robotic vacuum cleaner to avoid collisions, entanglements, or disruptions, so users do not have to monitor the robot and clean it continuously.

Combining TrueDetect 3D 2.0 and TrueMapping 2.0 with 3D Maps brings a whole new level of automated cleaning efficiency and flexibility for users. They can quickly locate the robotic vacuum cleaner's exact position via the 2D and 3D Maps. They can also manage their entire cleaning task on-the-fly, by toggling between the 2D and 3D Maps with the upgraded ECOVACS HOME App.

The new ECOVACS HOME App is designed for intuitive use, enhancing the user experience and reinforces the ECOVACS branding. The App is easy to navigate, offering users an optimal cleaning route. The interface integrates all the common features so that users can access critical functions easily. They can customize the amount of water used, suction power, cleaning times, and routes for different rooms.


A Luxurious Cleaning Experience with Built-in Air Freshener


The DEEBOT T9 is the first in the industry to clean floors and freshen the air at the same time. Connected to the DEEBOT's mobile system, the air freshener gives users a vacuuming and fragrance experience that goes beyond traditional cleaning.

The air freshener's unique design releases the fragrance onto the floor directly to remove musty and pet odors, while the fan at the bottom of the air freshener unit spreads the fragrance evenly.

The air freshener uses replaceable capsules, that can last up to 60 days, featuring three kinds of fragrances. Users can choose to switch the air freshener on or off using the ECOVACS HOME App, and extend its lifespan.


Powerful In-depth Cleaning Performance with OZMO Pro 2.0 and Auto-Empty Station Compatibility


The DEEBOT T9 comes with latest OZMO™ Pro 2.0 Electric Oscillating Mopping System with a newly designed motor and movement structure that minimizes noise.

The enhanced suction power of 3000 Pa also raises the bar in cleaning performance. The high-strength fiberglass structure keeps the suction power consistent when vacuuming both hard floors and carpets. The high-frequency vibration of up to 480 times per minute increases the mopping performance, making it comparable to an electric mop.

The DEEBOT T9 uses a disposable mopping pad that can be safely discarded immediately after cleaning. The specially-designed microfibers absorb water evenly, efficiently capture dust, and reduce residual water stains. The composite structure increases friction between the mopping pad and the floor and helps the OZMO™ Pro 2.0 Electric Oscillating Mopping System effectively remove stubborn stains on the floor.

A power-up kit is available for the DEEBOT T9 that further enhances the cleaning performance and user experience. The Auto-Empty Station, which clears the robot's dustbin automatically after cleaning with minimal human intervention, is also compatible with DEEBOT T9.


Pricing and Availability


DEEBOT T9's suggested retail price is IDR 8.29 Million. It will be officially available at Shopee with special price of IDR 8.09 Million and comes with a IDR 200K discounted voucher and a free giftpack on April 17 to 18 ECOVACS X Shopee Brand Day.


It is also available at Lazada, Tokopedia, and Blibli from April 19 onwards with an IDR 200K discounted voucher and free giftpack as launch promotion until April 22.
